Vaquero Midstream reaffirmed its belief in Southern Delaware Basin by moving ahead with gas gathering and processing project by selecting a site in Pecos County in close proximity to the Waha Hub and the Lone Star NGL pipeline and plans to begin construction in June 2015.
A UOP Russell 200 million-cubic-feet-per-day cryogenic unit will anchor Vaquero Midstream’s infrastructure solution. This newly-built facility, specifically designed for the gas in the Delaware Basin, will provide optimum recoveries and efficiency in any price environment, maximizing the producers’ netback. The Waha Hub should provide the best flow assurance and pricing for the residue natural gas, and the Lone Star NGL Pipeline connects the liquids to the Mont Belvieu NGL market.
“We are strong believers in the Southern Delaware Basin and we are excited about transforming the area’s infrastructure capabilities to a new level,” said Gary Conway, president and CEO of Vaquero Midstream. “We are committed to partnering with the producers in the Southern Delaware Basin by building a world class asset designed as a solution for the producers’ needs.”
Additionally, Vaquero anticipates building an extensive gathering footprint in the area, with more than 100 miles of high-pressure 8-in. to 30-in. pipeline, connected to Central Delivery Points on producers’ acreage blocks. The company plans to complete construction of the plant and gathering system over the next 12 months, and have the complex in operation by the second quarter of 2016.
